Let the Anxiety go!

As a mother I am constantly struggling with anxiety attacks from worrying about my kids. Not only do I get worked up when my kids are doing things for the first time... like swimming or exams during the school term... my mind is always freaking me out of things that could happen. Things I would have absolutely no control over. 

As a mother I get nervous when they are running around. Especially my 2 year old who is wearing a dress and racing like there is no tomorrow :) Or when it is their first day of school and worrying about if they would make any friends. 

The problem is... too much worrying brings about STRESS. So I really have to take it down a notch. 
How do I do that??? I do what everyone else is doing. I play Carnival!!!

Around this time of year I relieve months and months of pent up stress by jumping in the streets with my hubby and close friends. 

I just let the music flow and have a fantastic time dancing the entire day away!!! 

Granted my kids will be well taken care of by my sister, so no anxiety attack there... Just the freedom of not having the kids around... not having to worry about meals... naps... snacks.... play time is a treat all in itself... So Carnival is the icing on the cake!!!!

This is how I plan to let my anxiety go....

What do you do????


  1. Definitely getting out without the kids is a great way to relieve stress. We have date nights every week on Friday, and it is awesome for relieving stress and building our parental relationship.

  2. Looks like a great plan! Nothing better than a great party. I actually had most of my anxiety when my oldest two were babies. I thought about every worst case scenario. Now I don't have as much time to ponder the awful possibilities. I do enjoy exercise and crafting when my stress levels get too high.

  3. I'm glad to know I'm not the only mother out there who worries like crazy about her baby(ies).

    I say a lot of prayers and put my trust in God to keep my family safe.

    Looks like you will be having a blas relieving all that stress!!

  4. Take a chip for me...ah will be thinking of yuh when I watching Vampire Diaries and Scandal on Carnival Monday! :D

  5. I've heard such great things about Carnival. So awesome that you get to partake in it every year =) Enjoy the festivities.

  6. Oh I am aching for home seeing this stuff. I miss Carnival. Jouvet morning mud mass was so much fun as a kid. Have lots of fun and don't stop till 11:59 on Tuesday.

  7. We barely have carnivals here. Eventho we have one it's not as fun as the carnival in your pic.. :/


    Stop by and say hi sometimes

  8. I suffer from anxiety too, and I can only imagine how hard it will be once I have kids! When I recognize the signs I try to remind myself how I would much rather be a laid back, go with the flow type of person and not to stress!

My Version of Fall.

I have been seeing on other blogs beautiful pictures of the ever changing and eye stimulating Fall season. Honestly living in Trinidad limits your experiences of the changing seasons and seeing how spring turns to summer to fall and then winter. All I have is endless summer greenery. All I have is the constant warm weather and lush green rain forests.

So I have been living vicariously through other blog admiring the Fall pictures and sometimes questioning if it is really true. Then I had a beautiful sunny day yesterday and got to spend the day just lying on a beach and soaking in the sun. So I decided to give you all my version of Fall. And see what we get during the Fall Season.


 I visited a beach house in Blanchisseuse Beach and it was attached to 3 different bays. It was fun just splashing in the waves, and fun exploring each bay in the warming sun.

This was a bird's eye view of the bay that had clear green water and little watery caves to hide under. My son really liked…

Hate is a strong word.

When you live on a small island like I do in Trinidad, you really do not want to be too outspoken about terrible things happening to someone you know, because it is almost as if you are talking about it happening in your own backyard. But the fact is, terrible things do happen and unfortunately it sometimes happen to people you know or people who you cannot ignore.

In the last month there was a unforgettable incident of a little girl being attacked and physically taken advantage of ... and this rocked out entire community. Mothers, daughters, sisters, aunts, granddaughters and friends were really disturbed about the attack... because you do feel as if it has happened in your back yard! For a few weeks no one felt safe in their own homes and everyone was whispering about the ever changing rumors of the whereabouts of a man, who manage to physically hurt 1 and mentally hurt 100s.

In my heart I do feel sorry for the young girl and pray that through God, family and friends she can be a su…
